Abstract : A low profile camouflaged antenna for military vehicles and the like. The antenna comprises an elongated, typically rectangular, sheet of metal curved to conform to the curvature of the vehicle. Insulated spacers, for example of plastic or fiberglass, maintain a fixed spacing between the metal plate and the vehicle, thus forming two elongated slots which, when suitably energized, act as a dual-slot antenna.
